India, through the mirror of photography - Exhibition catalogue

FRENCH LANGUAGE

As soon as the announcement of the advent of photography was made in Paris in 1839, the British press relayed this exceptional news in major Indian cities. A decade later, Madras and Calcutta became the focus of the development of photography both technically and artistically. The fifty or so photographs published here from the prestigious photographic collection of the Musée national des arts asiatiques - Guimet retraces this epic through the eyes of great photographers such as Baker & Burke, Linnaeus Tripe and the famous Samuel Bourne.
Mainly taken in northern India, these photographs of landscapes, architecture, scenes of daily life, or even characters, illustrate the majesty of the sites and the grandeur of Indian civilization.
